Kevin Tang was awarded an Young Invesigator Award by Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) to support his research project entitled, "Constructive Sparse Signal Recovery with Verifiable Guarantee".

Facing the challenges of timely identifying, locating and eliminating malfunctioning (or comprised) components in a complex system under incomplete information, this project proposes a constructive and algorithmic approach for threat or anomaly detection by exploiting various sparsity structures therein. A special feature of this project that dierentiates it from many existing related work is the focus of looking for explicit algorithmic solutions to the inference problems with finite dimensions.

Rick Johnson, an engineering professor on the Hill—and, at the risk of a mixed metaphor, something of a Renaissance man. At Cornell since 1981, Johnson has spent decades teaching and doing research in electrical engineering, particularly in the fields of control systems and signal processing. But over the past twelve years, his interests have entailed as much art as science. A pioneer in the field of computational art history, Johnson leverages both his engineering acumen and his abiding passion for art to study the physical materials with which works are made.
